6416dio Digital I/O Module
6416dio Digital I/O Module

Features

  • 16 AES3 digital inputs, 16 AES3 digital outputs
  • Available with DB25 or BNC connectors for audio I/O
  • Variable sample rates without SR converters: 48kHz±, 96kHz±, 192kHz±
  • External clock via AES3 input or Word Clock
  • Optional backup DC power

The 6416dio Digital I/O Module provides sixteen channels of digital inputs and sixteen channels of digital outputs to and from a Pro64® audio network in a single 2U package, using the AES3 digital format. With its exceptional clock performance, the 6416dio meets the needs of digital console and recording workstation users in a wide range of applications.

Simply connect the 6416dio to a Pro64 network with a Cat-5e cable and it's ready to use; no complex addressing or programming is required. Digital data is transmitted throughout the network using A-Net®, Aviom's audio transmission protocol deigned for the demands of streaming high fidelity real-time digital audio.

Product Details

The 6416dio Digital I/O Module provides sixteen channels of AES3 format digital inputs and outputs to and from a Pro64®audio network. The input and output sections of the 6416dio module can be independently configured to operate within a specified 16-channel A-Net Slot range or programmed using the matrix in the free Pro64 Network Manager software for maximum routing versatility. Each input channel of a 6416dio can be made active on the Pro64 audio network as needed.

Clocking and Sync

The 6416dio supports all valid Pro64 system sample rates, from 44.1/48kHz± to 192kHz±. Regardless of the sample rate of incoming audio, no sample rate converters are used, guaranteeing pristine, low latency distribution of the digital signal. The 6416dio can clock to the module's internal clock, the distributed network clock, an AES3 digital input, or an external Word Clock. The selected clock is also output locally through Word Clock out as well as embedded in the AES3 outputs. If the 6416dio is set as the Pro64 network Clock Master, the selected clock is also distributed throughout the Pro64 network over A-Net , using Aviom's revolutionary clock dejitter algorithms.

The 6416dio is available with either BNC or DB25 multipin connectors for audio I/O. DB25 connectors for both the Digidesign®/Tascam® and Yamaha® compatible pinouts are provided.

The 6416dio also includes I/O for Aviom's innovative Virtual Data Cables. The VDCs can be used for simultaneously distributing up to 14 channels of non-audio control data to any device on the Pro64 network. The 6416dio provides VDC connectors for RS-232 or RS-422, as well as GPIO.

The 6416dio is fully compatible with all Pro64 Series products, allowing sophisticated audio networking systems to be designed, scaled, and expanded as needed. The 6416dio meets or exceeds the AES3 specifications for Input Level, Jitter Tolerance, Common Mode Rejection, and Jitter Gain.
